Medical Funds for Indigenous Two Spirit Angel

Donation protected
Xochitl Papalotl is a Nahuatl 2 Spirit Warrior, Water Protector, and Survivor, living on Washeshu, Shoshone, and Pauite territory. Late last month they were diagnosed with an endometrioma, a growth on their remaining ovary, that needs to be surgically removed.

Navigating the racist health care system in the USA has proved both traumatizing and impossible for them to find life-affirming care as an Indigenous 2 Spirit person.

Thankfully, Xochitl has found a doctor at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (National Autonomous University of Mexico) who, in consulting with colleagues, can save Xochitl’s remaining ovary, while removing the endometrioma, and provide preventative aftercare in the hopes that Xochitl need not go through this again.

Our goal is $8,000 USD. We are raising funds to cover travel, accommodations, rent/food/bills while they take recovery time off from work, and for the preventative care that they need.

In 2016 Xochitl survived encephalitis, an infection of the brain and spinal cord, that nearly killed them. The cause was an undiagnosed teratoma, that led to misdiagnosed encephalitis by a medical system that regularly dismisses the medical needs of Black and Indigenous peoples.

Xochitl has seen so many people through unbelievably hard times. They’ve thrown down from Wet'suwet'en Territories to Standing Rock. The love and care they provide to their community is unquantifiable and we need to show up now however we can.

If you believe in mutual aid and reproductive justice or just plain love Xochitl so big your heart could burst, please dig deep.

Funds can also be sent via e-transfer, write us for the address, or to Xochitl's paypal at www.paypal.me/xochitl18

In love and solidarity!
